Hi, I'm Silvia, I will turn my (first!) 50s at the end of the year. Marta is my daughter, she's 12. Otto is our dog (3yrs old). I'm working as a linguistic and cultural mediator with asylum seekers, refugees and foreigners. In my "previus" life I was a photoreporter (for 20yrs). Marta's father lives close here and she shares her time almost 50% with the two of us. I was born in Bologna, then I moved to Milan and 18yrs ago I found and choose to live in here. Usually I got out from home around 7.45 a.m. and I'm back around 5.45 p.m, Marta goes to school in Varzi (16km from home) . We have many friends around, there are very interesting people to meet and nice places to visit; the area is still quite wild with forests and rivers but there are also typical villages and small towns around . We're not in a village, close home there are just few houses, a bar, the post office, the town hall and the doctor's cabinet.
Milan and Genova are not so far from here, if you miss city life!
I'm vegetarian but Marta and Otto aren't, anyone can eat what they like in here, in total respect one of the others.
We have of two houses: the main one a a little one where travellers can stay.
